  • Have you seen your doctor since you started the pill?

    Depo is tricky. A few are able to get pregnant quickly after taking it. Many take much longer.

  • Make sure you're well educated on what that entails. There's a lot of information to take in so make sure the doctor provides you will all the details.

  • I was on Depo for 4 1/2 years. My last shot was July 9, 2011. At one point I asked my doctor about starting a pill to regulate/force my cycles. While the pill will force menstruation, it will not force ovulation.

    Depo seriously fucks with your hormones. It can take quite a while to get back to your normal.

  • im just nervous because if my body naturally isnt ready to ovulate the i dont want to force it using meds. i also hear if you are thin the depo shot wears off quicker? because its stored in fat cells

  • Your body will ovulate and produce the proper environment when it s ready to. Give it some time.

  • No clue if I am or not. When the timing's right, I'll get pregnant again. It's kind of pissing me off that it's taking this long, when I got pregnant within 3 months of stopping BCP with my other two.

    Patience is not a virtue I possess much of.
